This last-minute project came across my plate less than 48 hours before it was due for review by the client. The goal was to create a customized theme, actually a grandchild theme plugin, based off the previously-purchased premium themes currently installed. The primary focus was a user-customizable homepage with slider and clickable features.
I started off by creating a bare-bones theme plugin to match the website layout and styling to the provided PSD mockup. Next step was to implement a responsive slider utilizing slick.js and a new CPT to allow for admin customization; specialized site content was handled by custom widget areas and shortcodes.
